Hon. Mr. HAGGART.

Mr. Chairman. This is the first time that we have had a quasi authoritative statement of the probable route of this railway. We have also had a statement from the Minister of Jus-

tice in reference to the facility with which a railway can he constructed along this route. The hon. minister stated that he did not depend entirely upon Dr. Ami's report in reference to the case of the construction of a railway through this section and he quoted from a report of a Mr. Doucet. 1 notice that the route, as laid down on this plan, goes from Selkirk north of Lake Ne-pigon and north of Lake Temiscamingue and south of Lake Abitibi.
